Why Liverpool should’ve signed Memphis Depay

Liverpool made a real statement over the weekend after dispatching Arsenal 3-1 with 25 shots in the game. One player, who has clearly been crucial for them in recent seasons is Brazilian international Roberto Firmino.

His impact on this side is vital as it allows the inside forwards to run in the spaces between opposition centre-backs and full-backs. This was very clear in the game against Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup, as his substitution in the second half changed things massively for Liverpool.

As the Reds continue to hunt for that elusive Premier League and look to hold onto that Champions League trophy, they’ll have to keep Firmino fit all season but that’s easier said than done.

One of the few players in the world who is capable of playing this role is Lyon’s Memphis Depay, who Liverpool were linked with in the summer.

Depay can play off the left or as a false 9 and was one of the most creative players in Europe last season. Despite his poor spell at Manchester United, there was always a very talented player there.

He always plays the false 9 role for his national team because of his goalscoring and creative abilities.

He has also worked on his defensive positioning, which is a very important part of Jurgen Klopp’s system. It’s unrealistic to expect the front-three to stay fit while also performing at such high levels throughout the season and Klopp will need options off the bench.

Depay is just 25 now, meaning he still has a lot of good years in him after making a fantastic start to this campaign.
